Toshiba Android Tablet Showcased at CES 2011 [Toshiba Tegra 2-powered Tablet Looks Sleek, Specs Included]

January 5, 2011, By Alex Ion

Toshiba’s booth at CES in Las Vegas was quite packed yesterday. One of the reasons was that the company had their dual-core Tegra 2-powered tablet showcased for anyone who wanted a quick play with the Android device. While still unnamed and running Android 2.2 instead of Honeycomb (as officially announced), it’s obvious that Toshiba’s tablet has what it takes to charm the consumers.

First, let’s start with the rubberized back — not only it feels great in your hands it also adds to the overall experience (definitely chic). Then there’s Toshiba’s Resolution+ screen technology that brings great viewing angles to the 10.1-inch display (1280 x 800-resolution) and amazing colors, with videos and photos looking very close to HD quality.

Then there’s also the an accelerometer and an ambient light sensor, a 5 megapixel rear camera along with a 2 megapixel front-facing one, full sized USB and HDMI jacks, a single mini-USB socket, and an SD card slot.

The tablet is only 0.6-inch thick and weighs around 1.7 pounds — similar with the iPad when it comes to portability, but did we mention that it comes with a rear cover that you can swap, meaning that you can actually replace the battery yourself?

Definitely looks like a product that can stand out from the crowd. Now why don’t you give us more official information about it Tosh. Maybe a name, some pricing info or maybe a release date? We’re keen on knowing more about your little fella in here.

Thanks to Engadget for the hands on images at CES 2011.
